Nieves Peña (Senior Researcher) (F): BSc in Physics at Basque Country University and certified as team entrepreneur coach by Tiimiakatemia, University of Applied Sciences (Finland). During the first 8 years in Tecnalia she worked on the development of web services and semantic technologies. Afterwards, she worked 5 years in promoting entrepreneurial innovation projects through different training programs and consultancy projects. Last years, she has been involved in several projects to analyse the climate needs of companies in their decision making taking into account medium and long-term climate projections, as well as the needs and requirements of different European cities to co-design climate change adaptation pathways.
